Happeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee New Year, and happeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Wednesday. For those who got pictures of Murphy, he is half the size he appears to be in all photos. The camera magnified too much. I spent last night running around, everytime Murphy moved a muscle, I was mother hen. I keep telling myself, "He is ONLY 8 weeks old." He is from high lineage, well bred, from excellent stock. His baby teeth are in sharp as needles. Teething of course. Puppies. UGHHHHHHHHHHHH. He is crying a little when left unoccupied as he just left 80 acres of land and 20 other Irish Wolf hounds, including mommy and daddy, He comes from the state of Kansas. I think my sister has taken a zillion pictures. My sister said he will noit be going on the beds. Guess where he slept for HOURS last night? He is smart as a whip, paper trained (I should be so trained) and Van Gogh is NOT thrilled to have him around. Van Gogh will be 10 next month. Snarling, growling, and MURPHY is NOT used to that since all Irish Wolfhounds that he just departed from are all laid back, gentle giants. Puppies. UGHHHHHHHHHHHHH
AT LAST-

I'm delighted for you Vee,
and that is one lucky puppy having TWO
adoring mommies! at his beck & call,
of course it will take Van Gogh a while to learn to
share lol.. he's used to being the boss around the place.

What a great start to the year...
new beginning in a few senses of the word.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, Vee.

Be prepared for a lot of cushion chewing etc
for a bit [lol as you know]

Good Morning All,
Firstly, I wish to add my thoughts
to others here on the passing of Jean/M04..
Only days ago she posted *here*
In the Kitchen-
see page > 1563.
She is definitely part of OFFBEAT past,
A lady who saw VERY hard times but who
who had an optimistic streak which
brought her through.
She was so proud of Chris and of how
He's getting on now..
And how she loved the antics of little Ella.
May her good soul rest in peace.
I guess this news is true.... I agree with your comment Grace. Well said. We've all become part of each others lives in a small way here in TOPIX. In some cases, more than a small way.

I will say out in the open that MO4 was a happy woman, and a very happy grandma the last couple of years. Her loved ones are doing well, and she spent a lot of time with her precious granddaughter. My how she loved that little girl.
I want to share her last FB post, as she was loving woman and I know she meant this for everyone she knew;
It's a colorful pic of a lovely outdoor evening party setting, and it says,
"Goodnight Friends
Sleep well with the Lord
Sweet dreams and God bless"
Praying folks, her sister has asked for prayers for her family.
thank you for this post Paise and filling us in on the details and talking about the positives ...

YW. Yes the water went down, by Christmas morning we were able to put on our waders, put the gifts on a kayak, and walk them out of here and join the kids for a nice morning. How was y'all Christmas? We just got word we're going to see -14F by Tuesday morning, colder than anything I've ever experienced. Any survival tips from a Canadian? lol

It was normal, nothing to write home about like your experience ....

the main advice? don't go out if you don't have to, dress warm, make sure you have something as backup in case the power and heat go out ...

Oh if I can only avoid going out! I will try, but the kids (I still call them kids though they're grown now, lol), I'm sure will need something...I do take a 'kit' in the van, wool blankets, shovel, generic kitty litter. And we have a wood stove and 4 cords of split wood up here in the decks with us. If the power goes down we'll be warm and I can cook on it. I could even see some family coming here because of that too. I sure hope the power doesn't go down in the high winds coming, lol.

Well the house is and stays high and dry, it's on columns in the air, almost over the river itself. Though one year it got within a couple of inches, it's been here 87 years and has never had water in it. It's the ground beneath and all around us that gets covered with sometimes several feet of water. Normally we don't even think about leaving when the water is high, it's quite a thing to cookout on the deck in the middle of a swollen, raging river, lol. We usually enjoy it. But with the need to get out at Christmas this time, it was a little stressful.
